Trump Vindicated: Germany WILL Meet Nato Spending Requirements

Germany has lifted its ban on selling weapons to Ukraine and has finally committed to meeting its NATO required defence spending after the Russian invasion, in a move that vindicates long-standing criticism from former US President Donald Trump.

After years of failing to meet its NATO obligations, Germany has finally committed to spending at least 2 per cent of its GDP on defence spending.

Speaking before the Bundestag on Saturday, Chancellor Olaf Scholz said “From now on, more than 2 per cent of our GDP will be invested in our defence,” announcing that the German government will commit an additional €100 billion in this year’s budget towards the German military, the Bundeswehr.

While Germany has increased its defence spending over recent years, it has consistently failed to reach the NATO threshold, spending just 1.53 per cent on defence last year, according to NATO figures.
